Rock Climbing

A random moment: These were just so funny I had to post them. They love these crazy glasses!

At the end of May we took some friends with us rock climbing. Their kids are about the same age as ours and had a great time playing together. We took our gear and lunch and spent a couple of hour in the mountains. It was a good time. We love finding things to as a whole family (we're seldom apart) and it's been fun introducing our kids to the things we enjoy doing. I know it will be slow going for a couple of years as the kids grow and learn, but it's well worth it. The memories and bonds we'll make will be priceless.
We had to stop off and buy kid sized climbing shoes on our way. I caught this shot of us coming out of the sporting goods store. They configured themselves on their own.
This was when we were waiting for a spot to climb. The kids were really good even though we had to wait a while.
Here are the kids having lunch together. It was a lot of fun.
Kyle is really good. He's been climbing since he was 16. Our first date was rock climbing and we'd get out to do it occasionally when we were first married , but with the kids we hven't been able to get out and climb as often as we used to (it's kind of tricky pregnant as well, hehe). It's fun that the kids are getting old enough to join us!
Scarlett was a total stud! She took to it very quickly and did better than I did!Look how high she is! She had been begging us to take her climbing since we got a child's harness last fall. We never made it out, mainly because Asher was on the way, until now.
Avanlee tried it too for about 0.5 seconds. She was just excited to be like the big girls. The harness is still so big on her anyway!
Yes, Asher was there too! He was really good...for all 4 hours! Thank goodness he's started solids.It really is a lot of fun andsuper safe if you know what you're doing. Let me know if anyone wants to join us!

That is awesome! However, Ben doesn't like heights (Maybe that's why he is short!) And I am just weak. But still looks like fun.

Yeah, the last time I went rock climbing was before kids and honestly I don't think I have even thought about it again until your post. What fun and doing it all as a family seems like even more fun!
